COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
This is a full-bodied, not so bitter but rich in hop aroma which gives the beer a delightful aftertaste. The warm amber color is very appealing to the eye.

Cask, Railway Tavern, Chelmsford. White lacing; caramel bronze colour, nose is floral, hey, citrus, straw. Taste is honey, flowers, grapefruit, nector, caramel. Just a tad too malty as there is a great mourish bite to this but the malt ruins it Could be the butt of the cask

Leighton (9883) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2012
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear gold with a dim foam head. Faintly tangy malts in the nose with hints of berry fruits. Light sweet flavor with further tang, toasty dough, bitter leaves. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mildly sweet to finish with weak caramel, toast and light, leafy bitterness. Average beer in sub-par condition.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2012
Cask - The Glass House (JDW), Norwich. Poured a clear mid amber colour with a lasting & creamy one finger white head. Biscuit, grain and bready malts all round supplemented by mid fruits, light citrus and grassy hop notes. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel - perhaps a touch flabby - finishing with a relatively short, low intensity bitterness.

DruncanVeasey (6952) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2012
Cask handpull, The Felix, Nuneaton, 19/04/12. Clear copper, narrow white collar. Light sultana, wood resin aroma. Bit syrupy; dried fruit hints, watery cherry stone; Weetabix and Wotsit sprinkles. No twigs but quite a bog standard, cereally bitter. Similar to, but more watery than the JW Lees Game On (also on the table).

BlackHaddock (3201) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
2nd Half pint at a beerfest in The George Inn, Eccleshall: gravity poured. Good hop feel to this, in both the smell and taste. Looked fine too, a full amber body with a topping of off-white foam for the head. Malts are around as well, this is an easy drinking, well balanced beer and well worth trying.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of heather honey, yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Quite dry to finish. Not my thing.

tombyars (1317) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2011
First tasted this at the Waterside Beer Festival, Seamill in June 1994. Cask, handpump dispense. Slight note of grassy hops in the short aroma. Resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt delivers a biscuity malt base with tart grapefruit notes. Dusty hops give a bitter aftertaste which fades into a warming sweetish golden syrup finish. An ok session ale.
